I fell in love the very first game i played on this. All of the ratings are very low compared to mine because they aren't comparing it to all of the other collegiate games available. The new tempo meter is cool because if I am going too fast I can just slow it down to the desired tempo. The ankle-braking moves are awesome. They don't always work but when they do it is great. Another bad thing about it is that the ratings are soooooooo low. But that doesn't really effect te gameplay.
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST NCAA MAYBE EVEN THE THE BEST B-BALL GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED. I AM NOT A B-BALL FAN BY ANY MEANS, I'M ALL ABOUT FOOTBALL. BUT YOU KNOW A GAME IS SICK WHEN YOU'RE NOT EVEN A FAN AND YOU CAN'T PUT IT DOWN! I THINK WHAT I LIKE MOST IS THE CONSISTENCY OF THE GAME PLAY ESPECIALLY IF YOU PLAY WITHIN YOUR TEAMS TEMPO. THE GRAPHICS ARE SICK BUT THEY ARE DEFINETLY NOT DRAWING ME TO THIS GAME, ITS THE GAME PLAY. NCAA FOOTBALL & GRAN TURISMO ARE THE ONLY GAMES THAT I'VE BOUGHT SINCE I'VE STARTED USING GAMEFLY. IT LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE ADDING THIS GAME TO MY LIST :) WHAT!
This is the best NCAA Basketball game ever made. I was worried at first because I heard a lot of negative about this game, but from the first game I played till now I have not been disappointed. The graphics are good and the buttons are easy to learn and get use to. Game play seems to go together very well. If your a basketball fan you will love this game.

The graphics are TERRIBLE. It reminds me of the graphics on the old Tecmo basketball for the SNES. Load times are way too long. Also, if you're playing as a small school, you don't get play by play announcers. Save your money.
this game is addicting. I LOVE IT. Its so cool because you can shoot hoops when the game is loading. The music is cool also because it makes you feel like your at a real game. I would recommend this game to basketball fans. Its just so much fun.

played 08 on 360 and it was much better. the physics are terrible, it's impossible to get by your defender or split two of them. players move without you telling them to and the ai for players on your team is bad. basically its as if a bunch of guys who've never played basketball before decided to make a basketball game.
